Meeting the Family Care Needs of Employees

1714-OverwhelmedMomPhone.220w.tnThe need to support workers who provide unpaid care for a family member is a growing reality for employers (large and small).  As the population grows older and life expectancies increase, the need will grow significantly for the next ten to twenty years.

As many as one in six full-time or part-time employees care for an elderly or disabled family member, according to a fairly recent Gallop poll.

The role of family caregivers involves everything from arranging or coordinating, services/support, to navigating the complex health care system, to performing actual care in the home — all while balancing workplace demands and responsibilities.

Honoring our forefathers and foremothers.

mt-rushmoreOne of the best ways we can honor our country’s forefathers this Presidents’ Day, is to be available on Monday to help with your senior loved one’s housing needs.

As with the men who founded our great country, we should always honor and salute those that founded our families, and gave so much to attend to our upbringing.

As always, we will be available Monday to help answer your senior housing questions.

In addition to our services, our local, Tampa/St. Pete-area network of trusted, associated professionals can assist with elder law issues (wills, advanced directives and power of attorney), coordination of veterans benefits, financial planning, down-sizing and moving – to name a few.

Give us a call, or drop us a line.  We will be happy to help.

God Bless America, and our seniors, too!

Summer “Respite” Stay

A “respite stay” is a short-term residency at an assisted living community lasting from a few days to a few weeks.

Included in the stay are: meals and snacks, daily events. programs and entertainment, and appropriate help with activities of daily living (ADLs).  With so many different assisted living communities in this area, there is likely to be a community that can meet your short-term needs.

Respite stays can be an invaluable asset to families that face any of these situations:

  • Family vacation
  • Out of town family emergency
  • Recovery from medical procedure
  • Recovery from a major illness
  • Unexpected business trip
  • Special, or extended, vacation
  • Need for a break to avoid caretaker burn-out

Another use for a respite stay is for a ”test drive” – trying a community for a brief time to see if it is a best fit for the family’s needs.

If you struggling to find a way to care for a loved one and deal with a sudden emergency, a “respite stay” can be an ideal solution and alternative to round-the-clock in-home care.

Contact us at your convenience to find out how we can help you find the right solution for your situation.

Two philosophies …

“For me, I am driven by two main philosophies:

know more today about the world than I knew yesterday

and lessen the suffering of others.

You’d be surprised how far that gets you.”

― Neil deGrasse Tyson
